Wolfspeed to Demo GaN & LDMOS Products for Aerospace, Radar & Telecom at IMS 2019

At the International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2019) to be held from June 2-7 in Boston (booth #842), Wolfspeed will be showcasing its extensive portfolio of LDMOS and GaN on SiC solutions for Telecom, Aerospace and Defense communications. We have listed a few interesting demos that they will be conducting at their booth.

Low Frequency Broadband GaN MMIC Power Amplifier for 32V C-IED Applications: Using Wolfspeed's reliable GaN technology the CMPA2060035F provides a compact solution for C-IED applications spanning 2.0 — 6.0 GHz. With a fully matched 50 ohm multi-stage MMIC housed in a compact 0.5in leaded package system complexity can be reduced while maintaining competitive performance. It is suitable for C-IED and ISM applications.

High Frequency: Mid Ku-Band GaN MMIC PA for SatCom Applications: With 500 MHz video bandwidth the CMPA1D1E080F provides an industry leading and reliable solution for tube replacements for satellite communication. The three-stage design provides ample gain while maintaining linearity across the band. It is suitable for Satellite Communications (SatCom) and Radio links applications.

Low Frequency 63W avg, 3.6-3.8 GHz High Efficiency Doherty GaN Transistor: Designed for use in Band 43 cellular systems, this component is the highest power and efficiency 3.5 GHz 40W solution on the market. It is suitable for Cellular Base Station Transmitter Amplifiers applications.

High Frequency Broadband GaN MMIC Power Amplifier for 28V X-Band Radar Applications: With a three stage design the CMPA901A035F provides a high gain and output power solution at x-band using Wolfspeed's industry leading GaN technology. The high PAE at these frequencies combined with a ceramic package allows the flexibility for this device to operate CW for applications outside radar. It is suitable for X-Band Military Radar, Marine Radar, Weather Radar and Medical applications.

Low Frequency 120W Multi-Stage Application Fixture for S-Band Radar: With a thermally capable package the new CGHV35120F allows the end user to operate the device at high case temperatures (85C) while still meeting output power and efficiency requirements for air and naval based S-band radar systems. In conjunction with the CMPA2735015S the overall gain from driver to output stage is well over 45dB and with the pre-driver operating at 50V overall system complexity and size can be reduced. It is suitable for S-band Radar applications.

High Frequency Troposcatter Tactical Radio Reference Design: The CGHV1F025S-AMP4 application fixture combines two surface mount unmatched devices to provide over 50W of power from 4.4 – 5.0 GHz. With measured EVM less than 3% under OQPSK signal the fixture is able to meet harsh linearity requirements for Troposcatter tactical radio applications. It is suitable for Satellite Communications (SatCom) and Radio links applications.
